Understanding where ageing occurs, how it is experienced by different people in different places, and in what ways it is transforming our communities, economies and societies at all levels has become crucial for the development of informed research, policy and programmes.

This book focuses on the interdisciplinary field of study - geographical gerontology - that addresses these issues. With contributions from more than 30 leading geographers and gerontologists, the book examines the scope and depth of geographical perspectives, concepts and approaches applied to the study of ageing, old age and older populations. The book features 25 chapters organized into five parts that cover the field's theoretical traditions and intellectual evolution; the contributions of key disciplinary perspectives from population geography, social and cultural geography, health geography, urban planning and environmental studies; the scales of inquiry within geographical gerontology from the global to the embodied; the thematic breadth of contemporary issues of interest that define the field (places, spaces and landscapes of ageing); and a discussion about challenges, opportunities and agendas for future developments in geography and gerontology.

This book provides the first comprehensive foundation of knowledge about the state of the art of geographical gerontology that will be of interest to scholars of ageing around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Geographical Gerontology: Perspectives, Concepts, Approaches takes a critical perspective by acknowledging and addressing the diversity of the aging experience. There is much discussion of understanding aging and differences among older adults by gender, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, location (e.g., urban vs rural), morbidity, and mental health. Focusing on these dimensions allows us to understand how and why older adults interact with space and place."

- Marie Y. Savundranayagam, PhD, School of Health Studies, Faculty of Health Sciences, Western University London Ontario, Canada
